Excellent Doctor
The Center for Sight is a very efficiently run organization, and I was very pleased at my latest visit with Dr. Banker. The staff is very efficient, and Dr. Banker did a thorough job examining my eyes. Everyone that I have seen at the center is very pleasant and knowledgeable.

Dr. Banker Goes the Extra Mile!
Dr. Banker goes ‘the extra mile’…my scary eye problem was noticed on a Sat morning…I called him very early on that Saturday morning and he immediately wanted to see me…he studied my eye and, on Sunday morning, as well…this began a series of thoughtful medical visits…always encouraging me and providing hope when my eye was nearly blind…Dr. Banker has restored my eyesight in my inflamed eye and I see colors again…I call his surgical team the ‘A Team’ for ridding my eye of floaters and more…I thank Dr. Banker for his continuing expert help and also his team at The Center of Sight in Venice, Florida…for saving my eye…and helping so many other patients!

Not sure. He might be a very good doctor but he seems hurried and impersonal. The patient is just another retina he has to look at.

Five stars aren't enough to show Dr. Banker's expertise. He reviews the tests taken in the office prior to entering the exam room to provide me with an understanding of the current status of my eyes, including providing before and after x-rays of surgery, and other procedures. He addresses problems head on and explains what they are and what needs to be done. He is excellent in his profession, and so considerate to telephone the evening prior to surgery to answer any questions I may have, and, also to reassure that all will go well. Thank you Dr. Banker for saving my eye and sight!

Dr. Banker is a great surgeon. I had a retinal detachment and he did emergency surgery the same day. I am very happy with my results. He is professional and goes the extra mile for his patients. He always listens and explains everything in detail.
